Western Sydney Wanderers FC are proud to announce the re-signing of forward Jarrod Carluccio for the next two Isuzu UTE A-League seasons.
One of the first signings in the Wanderers Academy, Carluccio has been part of the Wanderers system since its inception in 2015 when he signed on as a 15-year-old.
The Western Sydney local rose through the ranks of the Academy and made his club debut five years later in the Wanderers clash against English Premier League giants Leeds United at the opening of football at CommBank Stadium.
Carluccio went on to feature in a handful of matches that season before breaking into the A-Leagues team with regular first team football under head coach Mark Rudan.
During the period outside of the A-Leagues set-up, Carluccio relentlessly continued to vie for his position through captaining the Wanderers National Premier League first grade side as well as supporting the Wanderers community through a number of player appearances in the Western Sydney community.
Tenacious and driven, Carluccio went on to feature in 10 matches and score two goals across all competitions for the A-Leagues team this season.
Carluccio said he was proud to be at the club that he loves so much.
“My journey started here coming in when the Academy was founded. I came in as a 15-year-old and took each step from there. A few years ago, I signed my first scholarship deal with the Wanderers and now we’re here,” said Carluccio.
“I wanted to stay here and this has been my club going on seven years. I love the club, I love the direction we are going in and I am happy to be here with the boss and the staff wanting me here.
“I’m from Western Sydney, I grew up in the Liverpool and Fairfield area. I was born and bred here, I’m so proud to be here.
“From having a season to where I didn’t see the pitch at all, to then getting consistent minutes and a chance under the new Boss, I think that was the point where I was like I’ve come through a really tough time mentally and I’ve gotten through that emotional rollercoaster now I get to see the other side.
“I think that made me want to do more and everything I can do to stay, to continue to elevate my game at the Wanderers.
“I want to say thank you to the members and fans for the last season, we need you there this coming season to push on for better results and better things.”
